Giveaway! Rub elbows at the swanky Prospect Park party

The scene at 2010's Summer Soiree, via

Prospect Park keeps you fatted with a buffet of all-you-can-eat free summer goodness, from concerts to plays to all sorts of frisbee-rific, grill-enabled (and soon wifi-enabled) open spaces. Usually, you have to be an elite type New Yorker (read: Bloomberg) who can fork over donations — and an $85 entrance fee — to attend the Galactic Star Groove Summer Soiree on July 21, an annual love fest at the Audubon Center and Boat House flush with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, electric boat rides and more. But this year, thanks to our new friends at Google, you can go too! We have five pairs of tickets to giveaway to what will surely be the swankiest party you’ll attend in the park all year that doesn’t involve hiding your Sixpoint cans from Park patrol. Read on:

To enter, send a tweet (or email saying “I want to get my Galactic Star Groove on at the Prospect Park Summer Soiree care of @Brokelyn and @GoogleNYC!” We’ll select five random winners from the entries and alert them on July 18.

Last year’s event featured designers and other bold-faced names, including Philip Crangi, Vena Cava’s Sophie Buhai, Rogan Gregory, Patrik Ervell, Sophie Theallet and, of course, his Bloomberg himself, according to Vogue.

In addition to catering by The Movable Feast, the party will feature a DJ set by Tennessee Thomas from The Like, music by the DJs of Southpaw, with decor by Kerry Quade. The event is sponsored by Helmut Lang, presented by Google Places with sponsors including Brooklyn Brewery.
